Phil Paleologos

As a kid, I listened to the night sounds of AM radio on my pink and silver Pacific transistor-6 radio (made in Japan) that picked up the great 50,000 watt clear channel stations around the country. I can still hear the smooth-voiced KMOX announcer, John McCormick, "the man who walked and talked at midnight." I was hooked! Since then, I fell in love and married the airwaves. In the fall of 2015, I will celebrate my golden anniversary, 50 wonderful years in broadcasting. From my early days as a teenager in Hot Springs, Ark., I began a career that took me from my hometown radio station to The Talk America Radio Network. My American Breakfast radio show was syndicated nationally to many major and small markets, one of my proudest lifetime achievements. Another dream was realized when I was named as one of the nation's Top One Hundred Talk Show Hosts by TALKERS MAGAZINE. I'm so grateful for all the opportunities I've experienced in this great industry, including hosting the morning drive on The New 1420...WBSM.

Optometrists are reporting that years ago, sixth graders would come in with their parents to get fitted for glasses

Positive Changes in Race Relations Made in Last 50 Years [VIDEO]

My family was transferred from Washington Heights in New York City to Hot Springs, Ark. in 1966. Race relations in this country were terrible.

I saw blatant discrimination first hand, and lived through some of the most challenging years when African - Americans were not only discriminated against, but loathed by some white people and loved by other white people. A lot has changed in the last 50 years, and for the better.
